Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 'Keith is low in the mix'

I am of the mind that if at any time you say that Keith's playing "gets in the way",you should be removed from any project involving the Grateful Dead's music.Not having much knowledge or interest in the nuts and bolts of how the original source of the music is altered to be delivered to us a listening audience,I find it disturbing that it seems so subjective,that an engineer's preferences so impact what we hear,especially one that would say something as stupid as Keith's playing gets in the way.Keith's playing on the Europe 72' tour was integral to the music and should be featured,not lowered,and the fact that he is missing or hard to hear in some of the more jam oriented material is inexcusable,get it right on the jams,I don't give a fuck about the Sugaree's. Armed with this new information,I'm going to listen with a more critical and discerning ear.
